British HistorY-3
'The Franciscans come to England '
St. Francis of Assisi was bom in the late twelfth century. His piety was not very evident in his youth. He was quite a wild young man, in fact. Later, however, he devoted himself to prayer and service to the poor, and after a time he went on a pilgrimage to Rome. From then on, his life was an amazing example of saintliness. He loved all — his fellow creatures, birds, animals, even inanimate objects. He died in 1226. This afternoon Rhoda Power will tell listeners of the followers of St. Francis who came to England in 1224. 2.25 Interlude.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
